... Whereas Captain America and the Wasp are in the thick of the fight. Y'know, I don't think much of the Earth's chances if it all comes down to the two of them either, but at least they're doing something. Think small-time, you'll be small-time.

Im wondering how mutants are going to be introduced/ explained in the MCU since the Inhumans have been set up to be the mutants of the MCU.

Tell me, if you were at a football game watching two highly trained teams going at it full force, would you rush out onto the field to help them?

The heroes involved in the fight with Galactus -- including Captain America and the Wasp -- had prior experience with cosmic menaces, as well as fighting in groups. Spider-Man and Daredevil did not.

It's all about context.

Superbly explained, Mr. Byrne. It was not Captain America and the Wasp in the thick of that fight... it was THE AVENGERS.

In addition... Captain America because Captain America. There's a reason he leads the Avengers instead of Thor... power isn't everything.

And I wouldn't have been half surprised if Cap had been aware that Spider-Man and Daredevil were present, and would have called on them if necessary.

I'm willing to go with that on the basis that stories that do not set well within a character's general tone should be ignored, but Spidey had fought alongside the Avengers and the Thing against Thanos and Daredevil had gone up against the Grandmaster with the Defenders to name but two examples. Spidey would later go on to beat down Firelord in a head-to-head match, so his contribution would not be inconsiderable in a match against a weakened Galactus.

What was done was within your rights as the author of the tale, but I was left then as I am now asking the characters, "Seriously, guys?"
